    40 Pieces Of Fall Clothing To Buy To Celebrate The End Of Summer

    Excuse my while I fall for these fashions.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A basic cardigan you'll want to snag in every color because it'll be so easy to pair with shirts you already own.,

    Promising review: "I got a small in this sweater and the sleeves come comfortably to my wrists, even when I raise my arms. I love the flattering drape and how it comes just below my hips; it's a very slimming look. The fabric is a tight knit like a T-shirt, but keeps its shape thanks to the spandex. It is thin, but not sheer. I wear it as more of a cover-up than a layer for warmth. I have this sweater in four colors: brown, black, light blue and wine. The wine color I expected to have more of a purplish tone, but it is a true maroon with a bit of a brown-ish tinge." —Meaggoo

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in sizes S–5XL and 26 styles).

    2. Or a flowy floral cardigan for those fall days where it isn't quite cold but there's a breeze in the air.,

    Promising review: "Adorable and versatile! This cardigan is oversize, I ordered a small and it was roomy and flowy. The color of the blue cardigan is very vivid and the quality seems quite nice (especially considering what a bargain it is!)." —Tracey Russell

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 10 styles).

    3. Booties with a chunky heel and stylish cut outs to match all of your autumn apparel.

    sorelfootwear / Via

    After having an unfortunate accident in a pair of booties last winter, I've been hesitant to get back in the boots game. However, I came across these from Sorel and my mind was changed. They are a TOTALLY reasonable heel height and make my foot feel really supportive all the while looks super stylish. I can't wear to wear them all season long.

    Get them from Zappos for $159.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    4. High-waisted ripped jeggings that'll look SO cute with that sweater you bought at the end of last winter and have been counting down the days to wear again.

    American Eagle, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I own these jeans and recently wore them apple picking — they were perfect! They're stretchy, comfortable, super soft, and looked great with the flannel I paired them with. What more could you want in a pair of jeans?

    Promising review: "I am ABSOLUTELY in love with these jeans! American Eagle jeans are the only jeans I wear and I couldn’t be happier now that they came out with this curvy line! They fit so much better! So comfy! I don’t feel crammed in them and I actually enjoy wearing these! And I usually HATE wearing jeans. If you haven’t tried them, you definitely should! You won’t regret it" —Kristen

    Get them from American Eagle for $44.96 (available in sizes 00–24 and in extra-short, short, regular, long, and extra-long lengths).

    5. A lace cocktail dress you'll be glad you invested in since October seems to be the new June when it comes to weddings.,

    Promising review: "I purchased this dress after reading great reviews. I LOVE this dress so much! I wore it to a wedding in the city. I received a ton of compliments on it (even from the bride and groom 😉). I'm usually a size small but decided to go with a medium. It wasn't super tight. I was comfortable dancing the night away in this dress. LOVE IT! Will buy again in other colors!" —Casey

    Get it from Amazon for $33.14 (available in sizes S–3XL and nine colors).

    6. An overall denim jumper that'll help you say "see ya'!" to your polka dot bikini because summer is OVER.,

    Most reviewers suggest sizing up :)

    Promising review: "Even though the dress fit just a little small it is still really cute. I wear during spring and summer with white or pink blouse and then with long sleeves and tights with boots in the colder months. Thanks!!!" —Clarissa

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in dark or light blue).

    7. An oversized flannel for your annual trip (and inevitable Instagram photo shoot) to the pumpkin patch.

    Urban Outfitters

    This item is part of Urban's Renewal Recycled program which means they are all up-cycled and all will vary from the photos on the site. So, before you purchase this sure-to-be-snuggly number, know that it will be unique in color!

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in sizes S–XL and five styles).

    8. A belted collared dress you can wear with tights, booties, and your favorite chunky cardigan — perfect for transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall. Don't you feel cozy just THINKING about this look? I do.,

    Promising review: "What can I say about this dress? It feels soft and nicely made. The pattern is absolutely adorable. I've received tons of compliments on it. Overall, it's a steal. I really love this brand and their products." —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and 19 styles).

    9. Combat boots that'll support you while you work your way through apple orchards or over crunchy leaves this season. Mmm and is there anything better than a dress with combat boots? Na.,

    Promising review: "These boots are perfect for wearing during the fall. They are stylish and comfortable. I did get a blister wearing them the first few times, but they're very comfy to walk in now that I broke them in. I walk all around my college campus in them and they match with pretty much any outfit. They fit true to size, but I went a half size up so I can wear them with thicker socks in the colder months. These were a great find and I highly recommend them." —Kelly Higgins

    Get them from Amazon for $12.02+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 22 styles).

    10. A casual midi dress with buttons all the way down to make you look as delicate and beautiful as the foliage in the trees this time of year.


    Promising review: "It's exactly as described arrived in good condition the material is nice and fits perfectly." —Em

    Get it from Walmart for $16.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and seven colors).

    11. Or Sam Edelman rain booties for those cold mornings after it had rained and the leaves on the ground are all wet and slippery.,

    Promising review: "I seriously love these boots. I wore them all fall when it was rainy, and now I wear them all the time in the winter. They look fantastic, nobody ever realizes they're rain boots! I walk around a lot, and have yet to get any blisters, no matter what thickness my socks are. Super high quality, I've had no issues with them. Highly recommend!!" —lkveggie

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5–10, in regular and wide widths, and 12 styles).

    12. A layered shift dress with sleeves that'll make you feel like you're finally nailing that ~boho look~ you've always envied on other people.,

    I just bought this dress and can't wait for it to cool down a bit more so I can show it off! It fits true to size and will definitely look just as cute with tights in the colder months. I'm already considering ordering it in another color.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 26 styles).

    13. A cowl neck waffle knit sweater you'd find pictured in the dictionary next to "fall fashionista."


    Promising review: "I have been searching for a comfy, cozy, cute sweater forever and this is it. I wouldn't say you need to 'size up' for that over-sized feel, they have already done it. I ordered a 4X and I am a 3X, it's a little bigger than I was going for but will keep it and hope it shrinks a little. The material is super soft and has stretch to it. Love! Would buy in any color." —NatalieS

    Get it from ModCloth for $59 (available in sizes 2XS–4X and three colors).

    14. A scarf you can wear in multiple ways to keep the chill out as the temperatures shift. Added bonus? You'll feel like you're wearing a blanket at all times. WIN.


    Promising review: "I bought this to keep at work as my office tends to be freezing cold some days. It is super soft and makes me feel as though I'm snuggled up in a blanket, but is definitely nice enough to wear at the office. Well worth the price I paid for it, that's for sure!" —Staci K

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49+ (available in 11 styles).

    15. A skater dress with a Peter Pan collar that'll let you channel your inner–Wednesday Addams while also looking fabulous for fall.,

    Promising review: "I have been wanting one of these dresses for YEARS. Whenever I saw them in malls or stores they’d be $$$ and never had my size, or be really form fitting. After reading about every single review on here as well as examining every review picture I decided to get the XL. It fits wonderfully! It’s a little loose still which is great because I’m not crazy on form fitting, it also flatters my short curvy shape. I highly recommend for any spooky girls out there like me who are always in search of a cute dress to wear during fall and Halloween!" —Maureen

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and seven colors).

    16. Off white Vans with flowers along the sides to add a little something extra to your standard fall footwear.


    Promising review: "Very comfortable and cute shoes. Look just like the picture. I usually wear a size 8 in women's, so I ordered a size 9 after reading that these can run smaller. My feet are a tad on the wider side, so I felt like this was a smart choice. They fit great with a little bit of room in the toes, after properly lacing them up. Happy with my purchase!" —Cyan

    Get them from Vans for $70 (available in sizes 5–11.5 and 23 styles).

    17. A leopard print maxi cardigan you'll want to add into your fall wardrobe lineup right ~meow~.,

    Promising review: "I ordered a Large and I looooove this leopard cardigan. It’s thick so it will keep you warm. I want it in every color! I love the pockets too! Get it you won’t be disappointed." —J.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in 13 styles).

    18. Leather mules to help you ~slide~ out of Hot Girl Summer and fall into, well, fall.

    hushpuppiesshoes / Via

    Get them from Hush Puppies for $99.95 (available in sizes 5.5–12, in medium or wide widths, and six styles).

    19. An oversized chunky sweater that'll become a staple in your outfit rotations from now through the end of winter — just look at how warm it seems!


    Promising review: "This is such a cute sweater! It fits as expected — order the size you are unless you want it even more oversized. The sleeves are long and wide and the fit is wide, loose and comfy. It is normal length, so that is something to keep in mind — it doesn't cover my butt — so if you want a longer sweater this one might not be the right fit. I love how soft and comfy this is, and the color is very pretty. Really happy!" —Rachel Yu

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    20. A cap sleeve blouse you'll get tons of compliments on because it's so darn gourd-geous.

    Get it from ModCloth for $39 (available in sizes 2XS–4X).

    21. Or a thermal top with a tie in the front for a casual but still super cute look you can rock at tailgates all season long.


    Promising review: "I love this shirt! It is so comfortable and cute. The color is spot on from the ad and it looks as pictured. I can dress business casual to work, so I wore it and got tons of compliments. I would say the fabric is on the thinner side, which can be layered with a cute jacket or a tank underneath for warmth if needed. Overall exactly as pictured and happy with this purchase." —Laney E

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and four colors).

    22. A denim jacket that can be accessorized with a variety of pins to show off your personality while also keeping your arms warm during the ever-changing temperatures fall brings.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Love this jacket. Would recommend sizing up so it can be a little oversized! Perfect over a summer dress of layered in the winter. The best jacket and Levis is also such great quality!!" —leahmaile

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $98 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    23. Or a hand painted jean jacket you'll be able to express yourself with — ZERO help from any additional pins or patches needed.

    Wren and Glory

    I have a sweatshirt from Wren and Glory and a few of my coworkers have jackets — there's really nothing like 'em. They are hand painted and really feel like a work of art rather than just a jacket. You can also have your name or initials added on for even more customization. Pretty sweet if you ask me.

    Get it from Wren and Glory for $395.

    24. A duster cardigan you can layer over a basic tee or long sleeve for a low-effort but super fashionable look. I'll take three please, thanks.,

    Promising review: "I wear a tank and throw one of these over it. They are beautiful, light, and airy. Makes me feel better about my appearance and one of the best purchases I’ve made on Amazon. I will probably continue to buy all the different styles so I can keep switching them up with my outfits. The only thing to be mindful of is that they are somewhat large. I ordered a medium the first time and then switched to a small." —Tracy C.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–4X and 24 styles).

    25. An A-line corduroy skirt to pair with your favorite booties for chic fall fashion statement.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    This skirt was there for me in my time of need! I had a broken foot, so when last-minute plans came up and I was in need of a cute outfit (that didn’t require trying to pull pants on over my cast) I took a chance on this lil’ number. And I’m so glad I did! It’s stretchy, soft, and made my butt look fabulous. Def ordering in another color.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and seven styles).

    26. A T-shirt that'll let you show off your love for ~spooky season~ — if you ask me every hour is the witching hour.

    Femfetti, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I have this tee and plan to wear it from Friday the 13th until the end of time. To my family and friends, consider this a warning. I don't plan to take this festive shirt off anytime soon. It's cozy, a relaxed pepper color, and looks great with jeans. Need I say more?

    Get it from Femfetti for $25 (available in unisex sizes S–2XL).

    27. A reversible poncho, because why NOT leave the house and still feel like you're wrapped in your favorite blanket?, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love it!!! It's lightweight, easy to carry around and super warm. It's easy to wash and dry, doesn't hold water or make the machine heavy. It does let off a good amount of lint so be careful with what you wash it with. Plus it's the perfect size, big but not overwhelming. I'm 5'6" so it comes just under my bottom which nice. It wraps around my front totally, no gaps for cool air to get in. The color is a beautiful and rich mix of what I think are coco colors. I have gotten lots of compliments on it. I will be getting another one soon enough." —TT

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in four styles).

    28. Heeled booties with decorative buckles that'll take your autumn style to ~new heights~.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE these boots! The quality for what I paid is unbeatable! I got compliments on them all day the first time I wore them out. I would recommend putting some gel inserts in them though, other than that their perfect. They have about a 3-inch heel." —Alana

    Get them from Amazon for $11.64+ (available in sizes 5–10 and 19 styles).

    29. Tights from Heist you'll find are essential to helping you bring some of your fave summer dresses and skirts into an extra season.

    heiststudios / Via, Heist

    Get them from Heist for $42 (available in sizes 0–20 and in a high or low waist).

    30. A colorblock open cardigan, because when it comes to fall fashion you can never have enough layering options.


    Promising review: "Favorite cardigan! Goes with so many things and for the price, you can’t beat it! I’ve worn this with so many other shirts and absolutely love it, will be ordering more colors soon! Runs true to size!" —Virginia ellen

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six styles).

    31. Chic high-rise trousers to upgrade your office attire now that the seasons are changing.

    Forever 21

    32. Or a teddy coat that'll keep you nice 'n' toasty when you venture out for brunch on cool October mornings.


    My best friend and I both picked up this coat last year and have already discussed how excited we are wait to break them out again now that the weather is slowly getting colder. It makes me feel like I'm being enveloped in a warm hug — and who doesn't want that?

    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium and it’s perfect! Super cute, I’ll probably buy another’s in a different color lol." —Brianna

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 12 styles).

    33. A lightweight pullover to keep your body at the perfect temperature for those early-in-the-season tailgates. Fall means football is back, baby!

    Draper James

    I also have this sweatshirt (I know, I have a problem) and I'm obsessed. It's really lightweight which is perfect for both the start of football season when it's still pretty warm and also during the playoffs when I'm usually in a stuffy room watching the game with my friends.

    Get it from Draper James for $75 (available in sizes XS–3X).

    34. Platform Oxfords that'll help you transition seamlessly from sandals into closed-toe shoes in case you're not quite ready to jump right into boots.


    Promising review: "I love these shoes!!! I don't typically write long reviews but I really love that I bought these. I bought these a week before a trip to Iceland and France, no time to break them in. They were great! It was rainy in Iceland and I wore these everywhere — they still look great and the platform kept me elevated enough that I never worried about puddles or anything getting my feet wet. I even wore these on an excursion to Landmannalaugar and while I switched to hiking boots for hiking, I wore those on all the little sightseeing stops waking thru dirt and lava fields." —Justina Pfister

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5–9 and four styles).

    35. A grid print skirt you can easily pair with your favorite sweater for a comfy but still stylish outfit.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "Awesome and cute skirt!!! just a little FYI, if you’re a girl with a booty, it might be a little short from the back. Other than that, BUY IT." —Tracey P.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $19.99 (available in sizes S–L and in black or camel).

    36. A lightweight button down dress you'll love because it gives off flawless fall ~vibes~ but won't leave you feeling overheated because it's still September.


    Get it from Walmart for $18.88 (available in sizes S–XL and three styles).

    37. A mock neck cropped sweatshirt with a retro feel to it that your mom will def approve of (and thus hopefully pay for!).

    American Eagle

    Get it from American Eagle for $34.95 (available in sizes 2XS-2XL and in burgundy or navy).

    38. An embroidered pencil skirt featuring a slew of warm, autumn-appropriate colors you'll want to save for a special occasion because it's so pretty.


    Promising review: "This skirt is just as pictured. I got the green one. The material doesn’t have a lot of stretch which makes it run a tad small, but it looks good fitted because it is a stiffer material and doesn’t cling to every bulge. It is a very unique and fashionable addition to any wardrobe! I got tons of compliments and questions about where I got it. " —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in black or green).

    39. A splurge-worthy leather jacket you can wear for years to come and relish over how soft and luxurious it feels each time you pull it on.


    This jacket is probably the most expensive and wonderful item in my closet. I don't have many fancy things, but I'd say this is worth every single penny. It's butter soft, just feels so well made, and honestly goes with SO many different articles of clothing. It's an investment — but it's one I'd definitely suggest.

    Get it from Bloomingdales for $598 (available in sizes XS–L and in black or caramel).

    40. And a jumpsuit that'll encourage you to ~leaf~ summer behind and dive right into a new (and, IMO, more fashionable) season.
